A yet-to-be-ascertained number of people reportedly suffered injuries on Sunday night after an explosive device suspected of being a mini bomb exploded in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.

Reports obtained by Naija News on Monday morning revealed that the incident occurred at the Doruwa drinking joint opposite Polaris Bank late Sunday night.

The explosion was said to have affected some buildings within the area while the unspecified number of persons injured are receiving medical attention at an undisclosed hospital.

The Doruwa explosion is noted to be the 4th to occur in the state capital since 2022 and 5th in the state since 2022.

Also, men of the Nigerian Police anti-bomb squad responded to the incident and have since cordoned off the area to avert another blast, in the event of any planted nearby.

Neither the Taraba State government nor the security authorities have released any statement yet with respect to the incident as of the time of filling this report, Naija News reports.
